Good posts Plinds.
The biggest point you made was in regards to the refineries. They are the bottleneck right now.
There is plenty of oil in the world, so supply shouldnt be the catalyst to high prices. Increasing demand should only have a minor effect on price - again this goes back to the fact that the supply of oil hasent come close to saturation yet.
You want the price of gas to drop - then build more refineries.
